Homeownership: Welcome Home

Print

Owning a home. These three powerful words can be intimidating, but if you're armed with the proper tools – including knowledge, good planning and the right financing – these three words can translate into happily ever after.

Knowledge is Power

If you're weighing the financial pros and cons of buying vs. renting, do the math, and be sure you've saved enough for the expenses you'll incur, such as your down payment and closing costs. Once you've made the decision to purchase a home, understanding the home buying process, what type of financing options are available, which option is best for you and how much you can afford will put you on solid ground. If you've never bought a home, attend a Provident home buying workshop to prepare.

Protecting Your Investment

No one needs to tell you that your home is the largest investment you're likely to make. Provident can help you find the homeowner's insurance to protect your investment.

The Equity Advantage

Once you own a home, the equity it builds can start working for you. You can use it for repairs, remodeling, and bill consolidation. You can even use it to purchase a vehicle.
